Found July 16, 2013 on Celtics Life:
I'm not as anti-Humphries as it appears that everyone else is. He's no star, but he can rebound, which is something the team has desperately lacked the past few years. And regarding the Rondo stuff, that's a non-story. KG got into it with Blatche and they'll be fine as teammates. So will Rondo and Humphries. Here's what Humphries had to say when asked who he is most excited to play with on the Celtics:"I'm excited to play with everyone, but having a chance to play with Rondo who's the ultimate point guard, can really pass, push the ball. I'm excited. I'm going to come in in great shape. I'm excited to get out there and run whenever he's ready to play."

Celtics Introduce Three, Waive One

In what might have been the least enthusiastic press conference ever, the Celtics introduced Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks, and Kris Humphries.

Kris Humphries, New Celtics Teammates Confident They Will Bury Hatchet With Rajon Rondo

WALTHAM, Mass. — Kris Humphries doesn’t get it, but he gets it. He knows his relationship with Rajon Rondo is a source of amusement after their physical altercation spilled into the stands during a game in November. At the same time, he knows better than to call their run-in a “fight.” Humphries is from Minnesota, after all, a region that shares some of New England’s passion...

New guys participate in most lackluster introduction ever

  If you didn’t watch the introduction of the new Celtics (minus Gerald Wallace, who was running his basketball camp), you really didn’t miss a thing.  I don’t think anyone wanted to be there, especially Kris Humphries.  The highlights: Kris Humphries says he and Rondo will be fine, and he’ll work to get Rondo’s respect.  He said that the incident between him and Rondo...

Humphries looking forward to fresh start with Celtics

Kris Humphries has been around the NBA long enough to understand how the business of the league works. So, when Humphries sat down with Nets general manager Billy King after the Nets saw their season end at the hands of the Bulls in the first round of the playoffs, he knew there was a good chance he’d be playing elsewhere next season. “I wasn’t surprised,” Humphries said...

Celtics Introduce Bogans, Brooks, Humphries at Presser

Earlier this afternoon Danny Ainge, Brad Stevens, and the Boston Celtics introduced a few of the players they acquired in the deal that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets.  Due to his involvement in a basketball camp back in his home state of Alabama, Gerald Wallace was unable to attend today's presser. However, Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks, and Kris Humphries...

Boston Celtics: new players don’t look thrilled to be with team

On Monday the Boston Celtics introduced new players Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks and Kris Humphries. None of the three guys looked happy to be there.

Breaking down the assets from the Nets trade

The trade is done, the guys have been introduced, and now the process of moving on begins (well, maybe it begins after the Nets introduce everyone on Thursday).  Now we’re starting to get a better feel for what the Celtics really got out of this deal. I’m hoping this post can be a handy guide for fans who are trying to figure out what the C’s got as far as “assets” and...

Celtics’ New Additions Realistic But Determined About Goals for Upcoming Season
